Thanks to its new partnership with fifthplay, KBC has become the first Belgian insurer to launch itself onto the smart home market. Next to loans and insurance, the group now also offers its clients a more comfortable lifestyle and extra peace of mind in the form of the KBC Smart Home package. fifthplay is very pleased with this new collaboration, which comes not long after we had the honour of announcing our partnership with Essent.
Prevention in the smart home
Insurers are increasingly investing in prevention technologies on an international level. In Belgium, however, they left these opportunities untapped until now. The KBC SmartHome package is a first for the Belgian insurance market. The prevention technology enables smart home owners to detect smoke, fire and water leaks instantly, reducing damage to a minimum.
Keeping an eye on your home at all times
The KBC SmartHome package consists of a smart smoke detector, a smart water leak detector and a fifthplay gateway. Did you leave the iron on? Are you sure the oven is turned off? What if there’s a leak and you’re not home? When the sensors detect smoke or water leaks, they send a signal to the gateway which forwards the signal to the KBC SmartHome app on your smartphone. Does your home have smart power outlets? Then you can also use the app to switch on and off appliances.
Expanding the KBC SmartHome package
The KBC SmartHome package is available from 209 euro. The basic package can be expanded with CO detectors, smart power outlets and additional smoke and water leak detectors, available in the fifthplay webshop.
Proud of our partners
fifthplay is honoured to be a partner in this promising collaboration which will change both the smart home market and Belgium’s insurance business as we know it. We are confident that this, much like our partnership with Essent, is the kind of collaboration that will make smart homes even more accessible in the future.
